's methods of birth control rarely fail. daniel mishell: well when i was in training in the 1950's, the only contraceptives available were the barrier methods, the condom and the diaphragm. the barrier methods frequently failed and abortion was not legal and there were a large number of unwanted births before oral contraceptives became available. oral contraceptives first came on the market in the 1960's. daniel mishell: that was a huge advance, enabling or empowering women to control their time of reproduction and have more pregnancies planned. and about 80% of u.s. women use oral contraceptives at some time in their lifetime, but most of them stop using it after a year or two to either have another child or concern about side effects. but now we have data on long-term use of oral contraceptives and there appears to be no harm for women to continue to take them through their-- throughout their reproductive life. in addition to providing an effective form of birth control, the pill has other benefits. robert hatcher: after ten years of pill use, it has an 80% of protective effect against ova

as civilization itself, it wasn't until the early 1970s, that it was finally named a public health problem. looking at violence from a health or public health perspective has been very helpful, both because it means one looks at those factors that lead to and contribute to violence-- factors that you can do something about, preventively or even in a treatment sense, but it also tends to decriminalize things so that you can approach communities from a non-judicial, non-police point of view, and that is often that is often more acceptable for communities. communities are able then to undertake things. in a one year period in the early 1980s, dozens of african american children were abducted and murdered in georgia. alarmed, and determined to help, jennie trotter began working towards violence prevention in her community. jennie trotter: i became aware of communities that had very little resources. i mean, in fact, none. as a result, these kids were very idle, getting involved in juvenile delinquency and just nothing going on in the community, so it became the community program... we were abl

submarines in the 1920s, echo sounding devices emit a pulse of sound toward the ocean bottom, recording the time it takes for that sound to bounce off the bottom and back to the device. by converting echo time into water depth, echo sounding devices draw a 2-dimensional profile of the ocean floor beneath the research vessel. in recent years, however, marine geologist have employed more sophisticated acoustical techniques to map the topography of the sea floor. these robotically controlled imaging devices can map and area of the ocean floor tens of kilometers wide in a single pass. this 3-dimensional view of the ocean bottom can be clearer, more detailed, and even more valuable than the ocean floor view from the window of a research submersible. one such imaging device is currently being used to map the territorial waters of the united states. in 1983, the federal government expanded this region to include all terrain within 200 miles of american shores. the u.s. geological survey was assigned the task of mapping this enormous new acquisition for possible future development of resources.

of cairo extinguished with him. stranger still, at the same instant in england, s dog gave a terrifying howl and died. then georges benedite, the head of egyptian antiquities at the louvre museum, died of a stroke after leaving a tomb. still another death occurred-- that of arthur c. mace from the metropolitan museum in new york, who was assisting carter. the bizarre events surrounding the opening of tutankhamun's tomb appear today to have been merely coincidental. the unextinguishable legend of the mummy's curse had begun. who was this king? what was he like? what did he achieve in a life lived 34 centuries ago? we don't know for sure. all we have are images. even with its discovery, the tomb still refuses to yield many of its secrets. we know only that the young boy king, tutankhamun, grew up during one of the most turbulent periods in egypt's long history. it was a time when the stability of egypt had been wracked by a religious and political revolution that for the first time in history eliminated all gods but one: aten, the sun. the precipitator of the crisis was the pharaoh akhena
, folks feel very comfortable that this problem was addressed and successfully licked back in the 80's and that it's something we can move on away from at this point. and that is absolutely not the case. smoking also increases the risk of premature delivery and low birth weight. in fact, babies whose mothers smoke are at greater risk for sudden infant death syndrome. calvin john hobel: sometimes it's hard to look at just the effect of smoking by itself, because smoking women have other habits that compound the effect of smoking. for example, nutrition. women who smoke tend to have poor nutrition. they may also be the person who's not taking their vitamins so they have a folic acid deficiency. so when you combine poor nutrition and not taking adequate vitamins, then in combination, that can lead to more serious problems. women often become more health conscious when they become pregnant. and that often translates into a more healthy diet. women aren't "eating for two," as the old saying goes. they only need a few more calories. but they do need to eat well. undernourished pregnant women

, as a whole, and get some idea of the size and number of people that lived here. keach: during the 1960s, archaeologists surveyed the entire city, revealing an urban grid as deliberate as the streets of manhattan. a total of 2,600 buildings lined densely packed streets. 80% of these were residential compounds. these compounds enclosed numerous sleeping rooms, patios and kitchens. archaeologists estimate that 30 to 100 people could be housed in a single compound. were these like modern apartment buildings, where strangers lived together by chance ? or was there a thread of kinship connecting the residents of these large compounds ? what clues were left behind of teotihuacan's families ? archaeologist michael spence. we usually bury in cemeteries set apart from the places where the people lived. that makes it difficult to tie them ba into their living quarters. in teotihuacan, fortunately, the people were buried within the apartment compound. some of them were buried in open spaces like patios. these would have been particularly important individuals. but many of them were buried under the
in a pivotal position in the course of drama is ibsen's peer gynt. ibsen wrote peer gynt in the late 1860s as an epic poem not intended for the stage. some years later, he decided to have it staged and commissioned edvard grieg to write the music for it. [music] ibsen developed the poetic epic play on an actual character in norwegian folklore who had lived about 100 years earlier. the setting is strongly norwegian: brooding skies, mountain and valley, fjord and forest. in peer gynt, ibsen weaves folktale and fantasy, developing a new picture of emerging man and the problem of heroism in the modern age. peer, like other great literary epic heroes such as beowulf, siegfried, roland and faust, reflects a universal human condition: the search for identity and the mortal consequences of his actions. but peer is a more complex and introspective hero. while on the one hand he is an imaginative storyteller, he is also a liar. though he recognizes the good and the ideal, he consistently opts for evil and compromise. when there is a shipwreck, peer determines that the cook's life is expendable and s
in the 1900s. and when the human race gets up to where there is the two instead of a one, then the human race will be doing things like this, at first a few people and then later, more. all you people have calculators. you get them in your rice krispies box, when you open your cereal. i can remember when calculators first came out, they were so rare and so expensive that at my school in san francisco, we were told, "you can't use a calculator for exams." why? because only the rich ones can have them and that's discriminating against the poor folk, so nobody can use a calculator, they are too expensive, too hard to get. and how about today? like i say in your rice krispies in the morning, there is a calculator, okay? everyone has them. and so today, how many people orbit around the world, a lot or a little? how about tomorrow? i talked to an astronaut type couple of summers ago. and he belongs to a club where to be in that club, you have had to orbit the earth at least once. i thought to myself, must be awfully small club, it's a big club. i forget what it is, it's more than a hundred. you kno
in an idealized maya past -- no wars, no power struggles, no economic turmoil. but in the 1940s, evidence uncovered at magnificent ruins like palenque in northern mexico began to change this notion of a peaceful maya. archaeologists investigated a structure known as the "temple of the inscriptions." the building's upper level seemed imposingly solid. but beneath it, archaeologists discovered a hidden staircase. it had been deliberately blocked with rubble in ancient times. it took three years to clear the debris. a hundred feet down, at the base of the staircase, lay one of the most magnificent maya tombs ever found. at its heart lay a limestone sarcophagus. might these images carved on its surface reveal more about the ancient grave site ? archaeologist peter matthews. in 1952, the hieroglyphics could not be read either in this tomb inscription or anywhere else at palenque, apart from the dates. and it was considered at that stage that most of the burials that were dug up were those of priests. keach: the burial itself was proof of the extraordinary power and wealth of the deceased. the
what happened to the-- what was it? - skylab. - the skylab? skylab back in the 70s, it was in an elliptical orbit, okay, going around, around, around and what happened is there was a lot of solar activity and the atmosphere little bit deeper at times, and they thought, yeah, and this come in and hits a little bit of atmosphere. slows down a tiny, tiny bit, but once it slows down that means it's not gonna go so high next throw, huh? then it comes down, slow down a little bit more. next time up to here and so the orbit decays, because it drags its feet as it comes by and keeps decaying, decaying, decaying and then phoom, splasharoony. if you're going about 20,000 miles per hour and hit the air, guess what happens to you? okay, you get burned up, burned to a crisp. when you see the meteors up there, you know, you see the meteors like there was a meteor shower a few months ago. you know what those meteors are? they call them falling stars, yeah? how big is a falling star on the average? humungous, humungous, humungous or humungous, humungous, humungous, humungous or abo
: i agree with him. amy goodman: that the u.s. is the greatest purveyor of violence. rep. john lewis: we have more- we spend hundreds and thousand, millions and billions of dollars on weaponry. we're supplying the world. we sell arms to everybody. dr. king was saying that we have to put an end to this madness. he was influenced by gandhi, and gandhi said it's nonviolence or nonexistence. dr. king went on to say, "we must learn to live together as brothers and sisters, or we will perish as fools." he was saying, in effect, that we have enough bombs and missiles and guns to destroy the planet. he said it then, and it's still true today. amy goodman: at the time, time magazine called the speech "demagogic slander that sounded like a script for radio hanoi." that's the dr. king 1967 speech against the war in vietnam. the washington post declared king had, quote, "diminished his usefulness to his cause, his country, his people." rep. john lewis: i think it's so unfortunate that publications like time magazine, washington post - if they had to rewrite those articles today, it would be a di

"hey, everybody, you know what, hewitt here don't weigh 100 yet." i was afraid of that, you know? okay. anyway, one day, i'm at a friend's house, in the bathroom, he's got a scale. and look, there's no one coming. i step up on a scale, there it was, 94, right? and a friend walks in. and i gr

to gauguin. now in his early 40s, he wrote to his wife: reader: (gauguin): may the day come -- soon, perhaps -- when i'll flee to the woods on an island in oceania, there to live on ecstasy, calm, and art. there, in tahiti, in the silence of the beautiful tropical nights, i will be able to listen to the soft, murmuring music of the movements of my heart in amorous harmony with the mysterious beings around me. free at last, without financial worries and able to love, sing, and die. narrator: gauguin landed in papeete, the tahitian capital. he arrived wearing a hat he'd picked up at buffalo bill's wild west show. but the tahiti gauguin encountered in 1891 had changed drastically from the tahiti described so rapturously by 18th-century explorers. far from france, it was also far from paradise. now a french colony, life there had been transformed by bureaucrats and missionaries -- and by the european scourges of small pox, influenza, and alcoholism. within days, gauguin's illusions about papeete were stripped away. reader (gauguin): tahiti is becoming completely french. little by little, all the
rice in california since the 1920s. we're extremely happy to see brown rice being used in innovative presentations. >> applications like they do at the m cafe in southern california. based on a purely macrobiotic diet, which is one where everything is eaten in balance, and eggs, dairy, sugar, and meat are eaten in moderation, the restaurant is packing them in faster than they can wrap together the hundreds of sushi rolls they prepare daily. up to 40% of their cuisine here is based strictly on koda farms rice. everything from sushi to rice bowls to rice pudding to even their famous big macro veggie burger. >> we're japanese. rice is a huge part of it. because that is our main food we consume every day. and we have researched a lot of different organic rice. and this koda farm rice is absolutely amazing. that's all we use. this is the only brand that i know that's organic and heirloom. and the taste is absolutely amazing. this is the shitake mushroom inari. inside is a brown rice sushi rice. and it's got the tofu pouch. here is the most popular item, which is our organic salmon cucumbe
